    Where are the Chinese Restaurants in Israel?

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | June 14, 2009

    I have been in Israel for a few days now (mostly in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Jaffa) and I’ve barely seen any Chinese restaurants. I’ve seen two actually — one while driving and one while walking. I knew it wasn’t a big thing here, from queries on the Internet, but I was surprised by how few Chinese restaurants there are (lots of sushi though). Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places.

    This further emphasizes that the Jewish love of Chinese food is mostly an American phenomenon.

    Labor is not all good here. Last year Asian chefs went on a one-day egg roll strike.
